Ugly Dolls and the Imperfect Adventure

When I started to see commercials for this game, I knew that I had to play it. If you know me, then you know I enjoy random games like this. I think things like the characters in this game are adorable AF. I will also let you know before I get into this review, is I cannot wait for the cartoon!

So when the game starts the narrator goes over the story. It’s kind of interesting. they go to explain how there’s basically two city type areas next to each other. One was their town, Uglyville. Next to them, and was separated is Perfection. Well somehow, a robot got in and discovered how much chaos Uglyville had. So naturally, he called his friends to help clean up the area.

Your goal, is to find a way to send the robots back. At first, you’re able to do everything just fine. As you go around the town you collect materials and buttons from around town. You can use the buttons to summon friends for quests, or to purchase upgrades or other items from people in town. The materials are used to build things you need to complete your quests nd uch.

Questing is where I’m torn on. I loved how unique everything is, how you kind of have to explore or use the scouting item to find your objectives…but then after that it gets tedious. Most of the quests include you farming for items or crafting many different things that you need to collect from other things in order to finish. Now, I’m all for farming things. But when I have to literally spend hours trying to get the materials I need to make a bag to get a Wifi password it gets daunting.

Besides the mass farming I have to do to progress, I really enjoyed this game. Would i go back and play it again? Probably. Honestly, it’s not bad, but it wasn’t Cat Quests, or even BFA. It was a great game, and as always I encourage you to try it ut for yourself.

In truth, this game gets a 6/10. I really liked it, but the collecting of items became tiresome and I just couldn’t sit down and do a play through of the game. I don’t mind because I felt like I got my money’s worth out of it, so it wasn’t all bad 🙂

Watch Dogs 2

After the flop of the first game, I was hesitant to get this one. I mean, I’m sure it’s obvious.

 

But, I was pleasantly surprised. 100% surprised with this one and I can say, that I honestly like this game and it’s one of my top games.

 

So let’s get it started, you’re a guy who was wrongfully accused of a crime. You break into a top secret location, delete yourself then get wasted with a group of hackers who take you in and you do things with them :O

 

That’s the story in a nutshell.

 

You can hack everything.

 

Literally. You can hack everything and do about anything you want. YOu can take battery life, money cars., You can trigger electrical field, burn, stun kill, blow up drive. The list literally goes on and on with this game!  Your little phone can do anything in this game, but I can’t figure out how to make phone calls :O

 

Welcome to Dedsec.

 

I mean really. Who doesn’t want to be a part of an elite team of hackers who are in it for the good of all mankind? I mean come on. If I was amazing at shit like this, maybe I’d want to join Dedsec. The idea is really cool and the things they do there are really neat. YOu can

 

Make weapons and RC vehicles

 

Yes, you read that right. They have a magical 3d printer that you can use to make guns, RC cars and an RC shopper. YOu can also use it to change how the weapons look.

Learn about epic movies.

 

The biggest thing was watching an epic trailer then stealing the epic movie car and making it your own,. What more can you want?

 

PvP or Hack

You can hack another player, and I mean have fun with it. There’s nothing wrong with it.. It was a neat little thing they added into the game and I really liked the missions, trying to find the one who’s hacking your and eliminate them or counter hack them or whatever you want to do. The co-op on this game is also really fun and i think we had more fun punching people to death, then we did actually doing missions. It was fun exploring the city and brought back memories.

 

So all in all, this game was a great addition to the Watch Dogs games, and for the time being, Ubisoft renewed themselves. But I’m still on edge. Cough Division cough cough

 

I give this game a 6/10 there were some weird glitches I ran into and it’s Ubisoft. I do recommend this game if you’re looking to play Watch Dogs since this is 99% better than the first game 🙂

Tom Clancy’s The Division

Another installment in the Tom Clancy series was released a few weeks ago. So, why is this review coming out so late? I had a lot of games on my list to play, so this review got pushed back a little. I apologize. Def. not something I’m happy about but it was something that happened. Before I start this review, I want to warn you there may be spoilers. So be warned!!!!!!

 

I know what a lot of you are probably thinking. But Uni, we haven’t seen you stream this game at all!! I know. I want to add that I am not sorry about it neither. Why? Because all you’d hear is me cussing and fuming haha. But that doesn’t mean I don’t stream other games.

 

So what is the Division? For those who haven’t seen or heard anything about it…the Division is a story about a virus mutation that took over NY and Brooklyn. You were a sleeper agent that was woke up to help the situation.

 

Who are you Agent?

The first thing I was to start with is the Character Creation, or lack thereof. I get it. I really do. I mean you don’t SEE the face of your agent all the time, but there are more CLOTHES in the game then Hair styles. The hell is up with that? I’m not asking for full customization but I want more.  LIke, I was aiming for a Panda Agent. And the face paint isn’t as dark as I want it.

 

But enough about looks. You can customize your guns as well. I rather enjoy having a bright pink, bright turquoise and bright purple gun. I feel empowered.

 

Taking small arms fire! SMALL ARMS FIRE!!!

 

Guns. They’re things you fill with bullets and shoot enemies, or if you like it, other players. There’s a lot you can actually do with the firearms in this game. From Mods, skins and shooting. I feel like it’s realistic for the most part. The reverb is there as well as shock.

 

The mods you get and help improve your aim, damage, stability among other things. I enjoy my Vector right now, now if I could replace my second gun that would be grand. Pistols are pretty much useless in my opinion. They don’t do a lot of damage so there’s no point in having them, besides they’re required for whatever reason. I would love to carry around another machine gun instead of a pistol, but whatever. Who needs three Useful guns? Not Agent Panda.

 

Many Agents go into the Dark Zone….not many come out.

 

There is a place called the Dark Zone, or as I call it, the place for people to be a piece of shit. The idea of PvP in this game is very welcomed. I like the fact that I have the OPTION to kill another player and steal their loot. But there’s a difference between wanting their loot and being a troll.

 

For the time being. The Dark Zone is end game. So there’s not a lot to do besides the daily missions. The dailies are repeats of quests you did during the story line but at a harder difficulty. This to me is very welcomed. I like being challenged. I like fighting harder NPC and the change at Phat Loots. I mean who doesn’t enjoy loot? No one. That’s who!

 

Now, let’s get back to the Dark Zone. The DZ is in the middle of NY, it’s the center of attention at end game. The NPC are a lot harder and require more skills. Skills? Why skills? If you accidently hit another player while fighting NPC, well guess what. You’re Rogue.

 

Now, a Rogue agent are those that go against what they were trained and kill other Agents. From what I gathered, sometimes Rogues are cool, other times they’re real jerks. I’ve come to the point where it’s best not to pick up loot until you can extract them immediately.  

 

All in all, it’s a Tom Clancy game. I liked the story, I liked the game play. My only actual complaint about the game is the Dark Zone. As it sits right now, there’s no punishment for the players who cheat and use cheats to go rogue. That takes the thrill out of the Dark Zone. I liked running around in a “trust no one” mind set. Now I’m scared of my own shadow because I finally get this upgrade and BAM! It’s all gone.

 

This game is going to get a 6/10. I enjoyed the game, but the Dark Zone kind of killed the score of this game. People cheating the system for gain, is wrong. I will revisit The Division when the xpacks come out, if i get them, It’s a little iffy now. But who knows. There’s always tomorrow.  Or is there?

ARK: Survival Evolved

Hey everyone! Lily here, finally! Sorry about the stupid long absence. A lot has happened since my last review…The big thing was I did lose my job, so we’ve had to concentrate our time with other things, but it seems like stuff may be calming down now. I have the time to sit down and write a review for you guys!

 

With that being said. I was to let you guys know I am in the process of opening a tiny little online store to sell some nerdy things. From Earrings to Phone Charms! Whoot! I’m also looking into expanding my reviews to a few other areas, but that’s for another post!


So let’s get this bad boy out!

 

Ark is one of those neat little games that you either love or hate. It’s still in a beta stage, so there are some buggies and glitches but for the most part it’s easy to see where the game is going. But this review isn’t going to go on and on about those, because in my eyes, this game has SO much more to offer it’s players!!!

 

The Game Play

 

Imagine a world where you build homes, famr your materials and ultimately tame the biggest most bad ass dinosaur around. . I know what you’re thinking. “LIly, come on now this is Minecraft on steroids in prehistoric times” Pft…way to be a kill joy…

 

Though this game has characteristics of Minecraft, it is it’s own game with the respect…THERE ARE NO DINOSAURS IN MINECRAFT! (Disclaimer: Mods don’t count!) Now, this game isn’t all about dinosaurs now. There is so much to do, and even more to explore! But be careful. It is a dangerous world out there. One that can and will kill you without a second thought.

 

Curiosity can be a deadly thing in this game. Death isn’t something to take lightly in this game, and I’ll touch base on that a little alter. When it comes to ARKS, oh boy name of the game, you will want to check them out. With good intentions too. They have better gear, plans and other objects you’ll need to progress further into the game. One huge problem we came across is a lot of the ARKs in the spawning area, were wayyyy too high level, and eventually went to waste. It was so sad

 

Death in this game, is a serious deal. It’s very easy to lose yourself in the game and find a hungry velociraptor that wants to make you it’s next meal.  When you die, you lose everything. Clothes, gear, weapons, food. Everything. You do though, have a set amount of time to retrieve your items. Failure to do so, and you can kiss your work good bye.  🙁

 

But Lily, why is this such a HUGE deal? I’ll tell you guys why. It takes a lot of time and work to collect items, and a lot of concentration to realize, hey these berries are going bad in 30 seconds what do? Or you spend HOURS collecting enough materials to finish your little tiny hut to protect yourself against dinosaurs and the cold.  But one wrong move. Blip. Everything you gathered, crafted made. Gone.

 

No matter where you put food, it will always spoil. At least, that’s what we had an issue with. It made it hard to survive starting out, and tame some bad ass dinosaurs to run with us. ( I will always remember you Fluffy! You fought well beside me!)

 

Let’s get into taming dinosaurs really quick before. Depending on the type of Dinosaur, you either have to use precious meat, or common berries. I use the term precious because a dinosaur can be level 2, and kick your ass back to the pre-metazoa age. BA BAM, Science. Ok back on topic…meat and berries can and will spoil even if you feed them to the dinosaur. The time it takes to tame? Depends on the level from what we found. A level 3 dinosaur, once you knock it out, took us up to 20 minutes (this is real life time!!) to tame. I had time to collect some items, kick the dinosaur a few times, and finish building my house before I had a nice Triceratops following me around wanting to murder anything that touched me.

 

I lost that Triceratops….I got ambushed by two velociraptors. They killed me first, then killed him. Oh…I was so sad…..



How’s the game feel?

 

The graphics for the most part are fantastic and beautiful. You could see the dinosaur eyelids, the veins in the grass. Oh this game was so pretty.  I posted a few pictures on my Instagram of Fluffy. You can see every scale, claw and tooth on that bad boy. There were a few things that clipped and kind of floated….Floating grass seemed to be a big thing in this little grove we found.

 

I found myself, lost a lot and totally focusing on the game. I knew it was a game but at the same time, I just wanted to see everything I could in there. I will say though, this is one of the better visually appealing games I’ve played in awhile.

 

Now, when I said that I found myself lost in this game, it wasn’t the graphics alone. The sound effects in the game also drew me in. From the bird chirps to the sound of my impending doom (raptor calls), I just felt like I was in the forest. I was on the beach. I was getting eaten alive. I think you get the picture. Though a lot of the sound repeated, it was easy to identify the dinosaurs, and made calling out to my friends easy.

 

“Hey, Trombones, Raptor ahead, let’s go this way” or “Oh hey! Tire, I hear a turtle! Let’s kill it for food!”  #justdinothings

 

What do you think of the game?

 

Well, with everything being said. I like the game. The idea of losing progress is something that would technically happen in the real world. The idea of taming dinosaurs to have them hunt with you and eventually irde is one of the best things about this game. I’m not a biig fan of the time it takes to collect items to make shelter, fires and other things needed to basically stay alive, and the amount of stuff it takes to maintain them…you can kiss exploration goodbye sometimes. All in all, I liked the game, and can’t wait to play again. My ultimate goal, is to be a Raptor Queen and kill everyone in my clan, I mean path. I mean….oh who am I kidding. No one would mess with raptors.

 

I give this game 6/10. I liked the game, but losing hours of progress all because a level 2 dinosaur snuck up on you when you’re level 20 isn’t fun. I was literally scared to leave the Brotto (I didn’t name it)  It’s easy to lose, but at the same time when you get what you need it’s  easy to be ahead.

Beast of Prey

I apologize for this review being late! A lot has been going on, like losing my jobs….Yeah that’s not TOO fun but it’s ok! Something will happen =D It always does! So here goes nothing!

 

If you have a spot in your heart for MineCraft that you should clear a spot for Beasts  of Prey.  This Survival Dinosaur game found it’s way into my list of games to play. This may still be in a Beta form, but I must say…it was worth it for the most part.

Your goal is to survive…that’s it. Kill dinosaurs, other players, build weapons and survive. The game is very much like minecraft, except it’s not blocky. You start off as a bald man, and as far as I can figuure out, you can’t change that. So you’re forever a bald man, not that I’m complaining. You gather resources to build areas to make a living while fending off herds of dinosaurs and other scavenger people…The community itself isn’t a very nice one. I say this  because we tried setting up a private game and we had people enter the game and literally STEAL everything we had. Items that we have worked for 10+ hours for. Not that I’m complaining but that was a HUGE kick bellow the belt to us.  I hope they add a lock or something later on.

 

Gathering items is super easy in the game.  If you’re lucky to find a forest that you can grow in then you have it made for wood! Each tree respawns it’s bounty in about 4 minutes. I  did find it hard to get Ores and rocks. Those were a bit more tricky.  For the longest time, nothing would spawn and we eventually ran out of ore/stone to use. That wasn’t very fun! Luckily after a quick refresh we were okay and back on track!

 

Now the controls and game play are very similar to Minecraft, (I know I”m making a lot of comparisons! ) With that it’s WSAD and you use your mouse to guide the camera. Every once in a while you will catch yourself getting trapped in a ore node or even better, a dinosaur spazzing out after you hit it. Honestly, it’s that sort of thing that makes me really love this game! Minus the stealing community, I have nothing to complain about with this game. Everything  is pretty much straight forward and easy to do.

 

All n all, this game to me is worth the beta access through purchase. If you can find people to play with that wont steal your items and or your places then the MMO is very fun and exciting. It’s nothing like food teamwork that makes this game even more fun.  If you can’t find those people then you can always put a Baby triceratops in your area, You make that mistake ones. I thought it would be cute to have a baby one in my camp…he game me a headache. Non stop “RAWR RAWR RAWR” o.o ugh.

I give this game a 6/10. The fact that a “private” server isn’t private is a real killer for me. I love everything else about this game. This is defiantly one game that I will revisit once it’s released, but for now it’s going to be a 6/10.

Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper

I have always been a fan of this series. From Dynasty Warriors to now, this game has always been in my top 10. Once more, I am very pleased with it.

 

(Slight spoilers ahead!)

As the game starts out, you are fighting a giant hydra that has appeared. As you play through, you find the game slowly growing more difficult until you are told retreat…and the Hydra wins. As you retreat, you are confronted by a spirit who drags you into this world and tells you she can help you defeat the hydra, and basically gives you a redo. Depending on how you play, you can defeat the hydra or let History replay itself.

 

The actual story line as you play is heartwarming as well and exciting. You get to see what each person was doing before the Hydra came forth and set out to destroy the entire world. You help them gather points as well as Allies.  Each character had their own set of allies you can play as well as specific talents each hold. I like making custom teams and building those up. I’ve never been one to enjoy pre-made teams!

 

The controls, like with their other games, are easy when you get the hang on them. I found myself hitting the wrong buttons or using moves accidently due to them being close together. I’ve accidently swapped characters during a fight and it almost cost my that battle. I wasn’t very happy with that. I feel like if i had used the Wii U’s touch pad I would have done a lot better then using the actual controller. But I’ve stuck with the controller. I also found that using the Wand to be more of a pain than in the butt than convenience as I do have nerve problems and after awhile controllers hurt.

 

I really enjoyed this game! There were some points of it where it was difficult but the key point it had always remained fun for me.  I give this game a 6/10. Though I really enjoyed the game, Some parts were a little bugged or just kinda silly. There were just some points where I lost interest a little bit but I always managed to get back into it.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Another installment in the Warcraft Universe has been released earlier this month. I was lucky enough to get into the beta but sadly, didn’t have too much time to play it. Now that it has been fully released I sat down and played a little bit.

If you enjoyed any of the Magic the Gathering games, then you will enjoy Hearthstone. You start out picking your heroes which defines your deck’s potentials as well as your special abilities.  You can pick about every class there is in World of Warcraft right now, and you are then a famous person from that class. Personally, Mage decks, Jaina Proudmoore, are fairly powerful when they get the right cards. Hunter decks over power you easily if you don’t concentrate on the correct cards.

The game play is fairly simple.. You start off, like with any card game, drawing your hand and deciding if you like the hand or not. Most of the time, you just skip your turns and you only start out with one Mana gem. You gain a gem every turn so you can summon more powerful monsters.  There are a few cards that have very special abilities.  Guardians, for example, have to be attacked first, and they normally have a lot of armor, similar to a tank.

The goal is to, defeat your opponent. Simple enough when you look at the big picture. You win new cards as you progress further up the ranking, making your deck better. The PvP aspect of this game, seems to be working at a fair level. When you que up to find a player, it will most likely give you someone who is a worthy opponent, which is someone around your level, as they don’t look at decks.

Currently, there is incentive to play Hearthstone.  If you play and defeats 3 people, you are awarded with a mount. The Hearthsteed, as well as given an achievement for this accomplishment.

This  game is very simple to learn and keep up with, it is just a luck of the draw. The real complaint I have is that I had to do the tutorials again. They were a bit long, and excessive in my opinion. You can’t even play against other people if you haven’t finished them either. Instead of the 5 different tutorials they have you do, it really should be just  the one that tells you the basics.

All in all, this game is fun iif you have free time between killing Horde or raid bosses. It’s a great time killer and it is free. There is talk of it being released to mobile phones, so keep an eye out!! I give this game 6/10!

Natural Selection 2

This game has to be one of my favorite games from 2012.  It is the perfect mix of animal like aliens and well formed groups of Marines. At first, I was a little skeptic as I am an avid Halo Fan and have always felt that games with Marines and Aliens were all knock offs. However, after taking the time to play, this game is in a league of it’s own!

 

There is only one major complaint I have about this game, you sit on the loading screen for awhile, but once you are past that you get put in a room where you get to choose who you want to play as. Aliens or Humans! I played as both so here’s a basic break down.

 

If you choose to play as Aliens, you spawn in a room that looks like some sort of Fungus took over. It reminded me of the Zerg caps in Starcraft. As you play more and get more points you can evolve into more powerful aliens. Your goal is to destroy the human basecamp and stay alive.  You have the option to climb walls as well as air vents!

 

Now, if you decide to play Humans you have an all new set of skills and upgrades available to you. You have the option of having an commander, that is like BattleField 4 where one person can see the whole map and gives directions and helps out their team to successfully guard their base from the evil aliens! You can use the points you get to but better weapons and other items used to repair damaged equipment.

 

The game in itself is very nice looking. Each area is very unique in its own way. A perfect example is when you start off as an Alien. As you wander further away from your spawn point, the fungus slowly vanishes and you’re back at the human military base. Everything and everyone in the game is very detailed, down to the rotten teeth inside the Alien’s mouth! I could almost smell the decay when I was an Alien.

 

The game play in itself was very easy to master quickly. One problem I had was, if you played Human you upgraded a lot faster than the aliens and the game play became very uneven very quickly. In the 12 bites it would take an alien to down a human, it would take one bullet after a few upgrades. It seems to be a very one sided game.

 

The community for this game is also very uptight. The game that I was in, my team commander was very demanding and got very upset easily. It almost made it unpleasant. It seemed that the Alien side of the group was more well mannered, and I wish I could have been one.

 

All in all, I really enjoyed playing this game even though I spent a majority of the time sitting on a loading screen staring at the map I was going to be on.  I give this game a 6/10. Paying $24.99 USD to sit  on the same screen forever, no matter the beauty and funa game has, is never fun for anyone.

Battlefield 4 Open Beta

The next exciting installment of Battlefield has entered the Open Beta phase, so if you haven’t had a chance to play it then what in the WORLD are you waiting for?!

Now, FPS are one of my favorite games. They’re not the most easy or simple but I enjoy that feeling of scoping a random person right in the head.

I enjoyed the beta from what I played minus the little cheaters I encountered which made the game a little irritating at times.  As with many games, those always seem to be what ruins it for me. But I still liked the game regardless.

The controls for the PC were really easy to get for a rusty player. I liked how you could pretty much do anything you wanted. Jump over a barricade, swim in the water PILOT a HELICOPTER. All very exciting things!!!

I like the realism of Battlefield. I always have.  The guns are very realistic, as the bullets lose momentum and arch after they are fired.  For the most part, deaths were realistic too. I don’t agree with if you fall from about a 4 foot drop you die. That isn’t realistic at all, and frankly I find that dumb. Even if you have some health gone that shouldn’t kill you.

Dog-tag customization was a very interesting thing to me, as I never really experienced the military games. I liked how you could pick any country flag, and your other dog-tag you earned through achievements, kills and what you destroy.

With this being a beta, there are still some bugs and glitches. But this will be a game that I pick up when it comes out!
If you haven’t had a chance to play it yet, nothing is stopping you. You should give it a try, who knows, you may like it =D

I give the beta 6/10 Lily points! I can’t wait to play the full game!

I'm live! Come say Hi!
CURRENTLY OFFLINE
